It seems like a pretty solid casting choice, as do the others. As for what’s next in Chapter 2, director Andy Muschietti recently said:
“There are a lot of ideas for the rest of the cast that I’m playing with, but it’s a bit too premature to say those names right now.”
The first film was a major success both critically and financially, so it’s not exactly a surprise that the producers are hard at work on making this thing happen as soon as possible. The film is scheduled for release on September 6th, 2019.
